3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy burnt orange colour with small persistent off-white head. Reasonably subdued aroma but hints of grapefruit are present. The taste is multigrain bread at first until some funk from the yeast and a light honey sweetness kick in. Finishes dry and bitter. Peppery on the tongue but smooth down the hatch. Not too bad at all.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
375 ml bottle shared with the Quebec City crew. Pours a very cloudy orange with a creamy, resilient white head. Aroma is yeast, herbal hops, fruity, grapefruits. Flavor is yeasty, bread, herbal, fruity. Finish is citrus, grass, some mineral and...skunk! Lingering tartness. Medium body, average to strong carbonation.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a darkish orange with a large bubbled off white head. Pretty aromatically challenged. Apparently there is nelson in here, but you could have fooled me. Smells like wet cardboard, a vague citric/metallic tang. Flavor is some citrus, a little more cardboard, prickly carbonation, herbal bitter finish. I hope this is just a bad bottle. It was from Dan Murphy’s after all, but this is disappointing.

Beautifully balanced beer. Slightly dark, heavy and hoppy. Very heady, slightly misty and excellent aroma.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
375 ml bottle. O'Hara's, Tampere, Finland.
Clear amber golden colour with a tiny off-white head.
Fruity hops, lots of fruity sweetness and mild bitterness in the aroma.
The flavour is resiny and fruity hops, a plethora of sweetness and mild bitterness. Drinkable but a bit too sweet for me. Blah...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - pours hazy dark copper with a big off white head. Orange citrus, honey and some floral notes ( was a bit colder than should have been). Looks of citrus and bitterness with a lighter lingering finish. Mouthfeel was a bit thin on the finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear copper-amber with a nice, long lasting eggshell colored head. Mild malty nose with not much of a hop presence. Nice balance of far flavor with the malt backbone. Refreshing lightly oily mouthfeel with ample carbonation scrub.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
I’m not an ESB fan, so take that into account. The aroma is a pleasant mix of orange peel, caramel, bread, a little spice and plenty of hops too. The taste is hoppy and dry, but there’s an unpleasant metallic aftertaste and the length is quite short.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 375ml bottle. Pours a cloudy orange caramel, tiny white head, fresh hop aroma with a hint of malt, mild bitter finish. Worth every cent.
